Course no. 17 – module 5

Aligner splints with specifically designed VECTOR® expansion screws

Correction of malocclusion, i.e. crowdings and rotation of single teeth or groups of teeth with a CA® CLEAR ALIGNER splint gets even more economic, effective and time-saving in comparison to the conventional CA® set-up technique when incorporating specifically designed VECTOR® expansion screws. Transparency and aesthetics of the splints stay the same.

In many cases in orthodontics, the first task during treatment is to resolve crowdings, in order to be able to move individual teeth.

If an expansion is not intended or if it is not possible to carry out an interproximal enamel reduction, distal transposition of teeth might be indicated.

A preliminary treatment involving these specific VECTOR® screws can be performed in any case, no matter which aligner system is being used (CA® CLEAR ALIGNER, CA® Professional, Invisalign® etc.).

This course provides both theoretical foundations and the possibility for the practical fabrication of various types of CA® CLEAR ALIGNER splints with incorporated VECTOR® screws. The course is aimed in particular at dental technicians and dental practitioners.

You are free to bring one of your patient cases for case review.
